SINUMERIK 840Di Manual (HBI) – 06.03 Edition
Section "Drive start-up (requirements)" describes the Requirements of the SI-
NUMERIK 840Di for optimum start-up of the drives as regards material and
It is not the section's objective to explain in detail how a drive is started up. For
start-up of the drive, please refer to the relevant drive documentation.
The following distinction is made between start-up of the above SIMODRIVE
A first start-up must only be carried out if no matching parameter record is avail-
able for the drive in the form of the parameter file.
A series machine start-up must only be carried out if no matching parameter
record is available for the drive in the form of the parameter file.
The parameter file is then loaded into the drive to be started up using SimoCom
U in online mode (for online mode, see: Subsection 9.1.2, page 9-265).
The possible ways of starting up a drive are:
Using a display and operator unit directly on the drive (611U/E only)
Using SimoCom U:
1. SimoCom U is installed on any PG/PC with a serial interface and is direct
connected to the corresponding drive using a RS-232 cable.
2. SimoCom U is installed on any PG/PC with a PROFIBUS DP interface
and connected to all drives using a PROFIBUS cable:
– PG 740 or PCU 50 with integrated PROFIBUS DP interface
– Standard PC with CPU module, e.g. CP 5611
